Eat. Drink. Code. My CPU’s Gonna Overload!
During 9/22 weekend, attendees and Microsoft were awarded a new Guinness World Record for the largest app development coding marathon, Windows AppFest. The event brought more than 3500 developers together in Bangalore, India for 18 hours to design, build and test apps for Windows across more than 20 categories, including food, finance, productivity, books, social, photo, music and video and shopping.
The turnout of more than 3500 developers at Windows AppFest showcases the developer excitement for Windows 8 and the opportunity the Windows Store brings to developers worldwide.

My Personal Experience:
EAT.DRINK.CODE: Once in a lifetime experience #Windows8AppFest
Windows8AppFest is the best event by far I have attended in my entire professional career.
The entire event was well organized and I could not realize that we were well past 24 hours in the event including 18 hours for the Guinness record…
The floor was full of energy, passion, Windows Phones, laptops…. Anything you name I could smell Windows & Microsoft in it.
I had an opportunity to work with folks built Social, Gaming Apps.
One of the apps I helped with my mentoring was reviewed by the Guinness VP. He mentioned this in the closing ceremony as well about this app.
Overall It’s an honor and pride to be part of an such an wonderful event.
